Peter & Michael Ebert are two young brothers at the helm of Weingut Edelberg. A 21.5 ha estate in the Nahe. Michael Ebert began his career under the tutelage of Klaus Keller. Weingut
Keller in Rheinhessen, is considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of dry Rieslings. Through his work there, Michael was able to bring a lot of the knowledge he gained back into their winery. Most important to him was Klaus' unwavering devotion to quality and the understanding that "to make great wine you must
start with beautiful grapes." The Edelberg Estate, located in Weiler a small village in Germany's Nahe region, is a direct reflection of the brothers' commitment to quality. The estate was named for one of the region's most precious vineyard sites, Meddersheimer Edelberg, an extremely steep sloped plot overlooking the picturesque Nahe valley. They practice Sustainable farming, living by the motto "as much as necessary, as little as possible" only treating the vines when absolutely required to. This ethos extends into the winery as well, with minimal intervention in the winemaking process. The brothers seek to express their terroir
through the interplay of "the soil, the vine, nature, and of course us!" Working with your sibling isn't easy, it has to be a true collaboration.
